The Wolfson Foundation, a key supporter of excellence in education, has donated £100,000 towards the New Students' Centre.
The New Students' Centre is an important undertaking for LSE, being the first entirely new building in over 40 years. It will transform student life and aims to be the best students' centre in the world. Housing the Students' Union and other vital student services such as the School's Careers Service, the building will become a student hub at the heart of campus, adding significant value to the student experience at LSE.
The Wolfson Foundation was established in 1955 with the aim of supporting excellence. It does this generally through the funding of capital infrastructure in the fields of science and medicine, health, education and the arts & humanities. A key feature of the Trustees funding is the use of their grants as a catalyst to leverage additional partnerships and support. The Wolfson Foundation has been a significant supporter of LSE over many decades, having previously supported the redevelopment of the Library and the New Academic Building. Both of these landmark projects have dramatically improved the academic experience at LSE.
The Wolfson Foundation's commitment to this project clearly demonstrates the excellence of the New Students' Centre, and encourages alumni and friends to do the same. If you are interesting in becoming involved in this exciting building at the heart of LSE please contact LSE Advancement.
